A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Fimus,-i (s.m.II), abl. sg. fimo, also fimum,-i (s.n.II), abl. sg. fimo: that which fertilizes or manures, ordure, excrement, dung, q.v.; syn. merda,-ae (s.f.I), stercus,-oris (s.n.III);

- [moss] per totam Europam et Americam septentrionalem fimo animali insidens (C. Mueller), throughout all Europe and North America situated on animal dung.

- [fungi] praeter fimum vaccinum etc., quem copiose vere humido colere solet , solo etiam pingui stercoroso hortensi vel sylvatico , rarius truncis putridissimis (S&A), in addition to cow dung etc., which it is wont copiously to inhabit, also rich manured gargen or woodland [i.e. native] soil, more rarely on the most rotten trunks.

- [fungi] praeter stercus vaccinum et equinum, quae vulgaris incolit, aliquoties etiam in succerda, et insignis quidem statura ac luxurie, nobis visus: minor contra et delicatior in fimo capreolino, locis umbrosis humentibus jacente (S&A), besides cow and horse dung, which it inhabits in common, seen at different times by us even on pig excrement, and certainly remarkable in stature and luxuriance: on the other hand it is smaller and more delicate on the skat of the roe deer, thrown down in shady, moist places.

- [fungi] corpuscula varia occupat species vulgaris, in ipso etiam fimo equino nobis visa (S&A), common species take the the various corpuscula [i.e. spore-cases], seen by us also in the horse manure itself.

- [fungi] vulgaris ubique fungus ad fimum bubulinum , equinum etc.: parcior in graminosis pinguibus (S&A), a fungus common everywhere on cattle dung, horse, etc.: more sparingly in fertile [perhaps manured] grassy [places].

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
